Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

One night can leave a trail a decade long.

Red, Hot & Blue, Book 5

Ten years ago, a wicked curve ball and a scout for the major leagues gave Cole Ryan his big break. Before he set foot on the bus to training camp, Lizzie Barton gave him everything…then inexplicably broke his heart.

Now he’s back in Pigeon Hollow with a bum arm and a cancelled contract. Lizzie is still there, still keeping her secrets. Still haunting his dreams.

To make sure Cole would have the future he wanted, Lizzie kept her crush on her older brother’s best friend to herself. But in this small town, there was no hiding the results of her one and only night in his arms. With Cole away playing ball, it was easy to pretend he would never know. But now that he’s back it’s only a matter of time.

Right about the time Cole figures out what he left behind, cameras for a reality TV show arrive to film Lizzie’s brother. And suddenly Cole is scrambling to keep the spotlight out of his and Lizzie’s private life…and to convince her they can still make both their dreams come true.

Warning: Contains love that conquers a decade of sitting on the bench…and one night of sex that resulted in a big change in two lovers’ lifetime stats.


Back from a break from college before he joins a minor league baseball team, Cole has a mind blowing night with Lizzie Barton. After a little over a month of emails and phone calls back and forth between them, Lizzie sends him an email breaking up with him. He goes berserk. After a night of getting drunk in a bar, Cole calls Lizzie and get rather demanding in wanting to know why she broke it off. He knew it was over when her brother, Bobby and his ex-best friend, told him not to call anymore. The one woman he loved was lost to him.

Fast forward ten years...

After years of not hearing anything from Cole, the last thing she expects is for him to show up at the little league game she's at. The little league game that their son is playing in. You know the one she didn't tell Cole about? Lizzie knows that with one good look, Cole would recognize his son immediately. Once words and a good punch was exchanged, Lizzie admitted Mikey was his son from the night they had together ten years ago.

Not wanting to lose anymore time with him, Cole decides that he wants to become part of Mikey's life, and Lizzie's again. She is all he can think about. Hell, she is the only woman he ever thinks about. Question is, will she be able to let the past be the past and give them a second chance?

  Full of heart wrenching confessions and sultry sexual tension, Cole is an addicting book that keeps you turning one page after another. I know it kept me reading until the very end. I love Cat Johnson's Red, Hot, & Blue series. They always keep me glue to my Kindle and heaven forbid anyone who wants to interrupt me while I'm reading them. Now if only it was longer. It would be perfect!
